Two Days Gone: A Ryan DeMarco Mystery #1

“Randall Silvis’ Two Days Gone is a smart, twisting, vividly written thriller anchored by two deeply flawed yet fascinating protagonists. Yes, the novel provides cat-and-mouse suspense as a horrific murder in a college town is investigated, but it’s also a deeply rewarding story about friendship, family, fame, and the complicated relationship between readers and writers. Anyone who wants to dismiss thrillers as mere genre fluff should read Two Days Gone.”

David Bell, author of Since She Went Away

“An absolute gem of literary suspense, pitting ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances and told in a smooth, assured, and often haunting voice, Two Days Gone is a terrific read.”

Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Wish Me Dead

“Beneath the momentum of the investigation lies a pervasive sadness that will stick with you long after you’ve turned the last page.”

Kirkus Reviews

“…[a] skillfully written thriller.”

Publishers Weekly

“…impressive novel…an intriguing thriller.”

Booklist

“…this novel [will] linger in readers’ minds well after Two Days Gone.”

Shelf Awareness

Two Days Gone is a quiet, intense, suspenseful mystery about a man who has lost everything. Rich with descriptions and atmosphere….Two Days Gone is relentless in its suspense, and the final twists in the novel are sure to not disappoint.”

Foreword Review

“…a suspenseful, literary thriller that will resonate with readers long after the book is finished. A terrific choice for Dennis Lehane fans.”

Library Journal (starred review)

“A gripping new literary thriller….The fact that this book will be marketed as genre fiction is misleading; it’s more than that. It’s literature posing as a mystery, like works from Attica Locke or Louise Penny. Two Days Gone will be one of the best reading investments you make this year.”
